Do you remember that old disco song..."Freak out! Freak le chic.." (there seems to be a lot of silence on your end) Ok fine. So, you have never heard of it. That is what is happening right now, I am freaking out. It is a good freak out, I suppose. Wanna know why? Do you, huh? Do you, huh? (ok..I will shut up already) We got confirmation..WE GOT OUR FIRST COURT DATE!!! WOOO HOOOOOO. 2 weeks from tomorrow. (March 16th) However, two weeks from today as I write, we will be on Russian soil.
Now, lets talk about this for a minute. I am 3 weeks post-op, caught the strep infection, have a bladder infection, jacked up on the strongest dose of antibiotics known to man. I look like I am carrying a bowling ball down around my waist. NO ONE told me that the swelling would be still here. My mind thinks that I can be on the show THE AMAZING RACE, but, my body wants to check in down here at the closest Nursing Home. So, I have less than 2 weeks to talk my body into working with my mind so that the two can converge. In the meantime...I look like this....
I need to sit down on do some meditation for a minute or else I will literally look like that cat. (is that what that is?)
But, we are so excited we can't stand it. It is such a double edged sword for us though. We have friends like John and Angie who are trying to adopt their children in Ukraine and with all of the closings and re-openings with new conditions, it is taking forever. Then, I hear of sooooo many stories of how long it is taking to adopt in Russia. So, we feel bad in that sense. We will keep praying for everyone.
